She had other plans...

I know I said I was going to post Lucy's birth story yesterday, but yesterday didn't go as planned.  The last almost 2 weeks have gone pretty good, Lucy was eating and sleeping like a champ.  We thought she would not be plagued with reflux like Molly was, and we were getting in a pretty good semi-routine.  Then Wednesday hit. 

A huge blessing in disguise was that we had already set up an all day play date for Molly, and she was out of the house.  At first I felt bad because I was like "man, this whole mothering of two is going pretty well, and I don't want to take advantage of someone by sending Molly with them all day."  Thank you Lord for looking out for me!  From the moment Molly left to when she came home I was either feeding Lucy, cleaning up spit-up, easing gas pains-for Lucy not me, and holding her all day long.  Now, I am not complaining, I am just glad yesterday I was technically a mom to 1, not 2.

Today we go for Lucy's 2 week check-up...2 weeks?!  Wow!  So right now my 2 week old is sleeping, Molly is doing stamps at the kitchen table and I am working on our Christmas card list.  Life is bliss...for this moment!
Here are some out-takes from our quick, impromptu Christmas card shoot the other day...
Poor Lucy!  I was trying to get her to look at me,
Molly was trying to get her to look at her,
and the poor kid went crossed eyed!!
The *classic* photo!!

I LOVE the second one! That just cracks me up!

Hope Lucy is feeling better soon. Tummy troubles are no fun, especially when you can't tell anyone what's bothering you.

hahaha she looks so cute cross-eyed!!:) That last one is making me laugh!

Hope you get some rest and Lucy is feeling better soon - her poor little tummy :(

Laughing out loud at that second photo! So sorry yesterday was rough. Molly has a super sensitive tummy, and it was sure not fun when we were trying to figure it all out. And when the doctor told me to eliminate ALL dairy from my diet? I thought I'd never make it. 5 months later, though, it's totally worth it. I know you've been down this road before, but hang in there! Hope y'all can get some answers for Lucy's little tummy!

Poor thing! I know all about reflux! Audrey had it BAD! Praying things will be better and I will pray that you won't have to go down that road again! Alivia started to do that same thing and I just cried and prayed and shared it on the blog that I needed prayer and the Lord totally blessed us and she got better!

I love that second pic! I have TONS of pics just like that one! Priceless!

Holly said...

That last pic is def a classic! :)

I'm glad things have been going well except for that one day! It's a good thing Molly had a play date. I'm sure that made it a little easier on you with only having to worry about 1 instead of 2.
